Dimensions – Chrome Web Store

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/10/13

[WayBack/Archive.isDimensions – Chrome Web Store: A tool for designers to measure screen dimensions

This extension measures the dimensions from your mouse pointer up/down and left/right until it hits a border. So if you want to measure distances between elements on a website this is perfect. It doesn’t really work with images because there the colors change a lot pixel to pixel.

# Images & HTML Elements

Measure between the following elements: images, input-fields, buttons, videos, gifs, text, icons. You can measure everything you see in the browser.

# Mockups

Your designer handed you mockups as PNGs or JPEGs? Just drop them into Chrome, activate Dimensions and start measuring.

# Keyboard Shortcut

You can start and stop dimensions with the ALT + D shortcut.

# Area Boundaries

Wanna get the radius of a circle? Is text standing in your way? Press Alt to measure the dimensions of a connected area.

Google Music alternatives (as Youtube Music kills playlist data like title and artist fields)

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/08/30

Google is killing yet another useful (paid!) service [] Kristian Köhntopp on Twitter: “Google wants to cancel Google Music, in favor of Youtube Music. Meanwhile Youtube Music is killing my playlists by removing titles left and right. This is a trash fire. So there is Spotify. What else exists?… “

Block or ignore someone – Computer – Hangouts Help

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/08/17

Blocking persons (for instance for sending you materials that in G+ would be a T.O.S. violation) is only possible by blocking them, not by reporting them.

Most hangouts users however do have a G+ account, so you can request a block there.
